Wet Socks On The Storytree

I really hate having wet socks. As soon as my socks are wet, from sweat or just plain dampness, I change them. I don’t like having wet feet. I can change socks four times a day if they get wet. I’ve different types of socks. Home socks and socks for going out. I always wear two layers of socks, no matter where I go.

What do you hate?

Camelbak Care Package

After I posted this story on my blog, I got this response from Camelbak.

I was actually very surprised by its content. The marketing department didn’t give me a lot of details.

I got four Camelbak Better Bottles. A 1L which replaces my lost one, a 750ML and a 500ML. On top of that, I got their new BPA free Classic Cap 750ML bottle. Needless to say that it made my day.

I also got two t-shirts and a hoodie.

Reaper Rebellion S01E14 (CW)

Reaper is an American supernatural television dramedy created by Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas, who also serve as executive producers alongside Mark Gordon, Deborah Spera and Tom Spezialy. Kevin Smith directed the pilot, and is a creative consultant for the series.

In this episode, Sam and Andy make out for a few times. Sam tries to slow it down, however he learns that Steve and Tony have got their own plans about the Devil. I think that they are very naive. The Devil can’t really be killed or replaced. Naturally they don’t suspect anything until it’s too late.

Sam and the Devil become kind of fake buddies in order for Sam to lure him into a trap. The trap fails and the Devil is happy.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.

Doctor Who The Sontaran Stratagem S04E04 (BBC)

Doctor Who is a long-running, award-winning British science fiction television programme produced by the BBC. The programme depicts the adventures of a mysterious alien time-traveller known as “the Doctor” who travels in his space and time-ship, the TARDIS, which appears from the exterior to be a blue police phone box. With his companions, he explores time and space, solving problems and righting wrongs.

The show’s lead character is currently portrayed by David Tennant. A Christmas special co-starring Kylie Minogue aired in December 2007, and the fourth series started on 5 April 2008. For that series, Catherine Tate will reprise her role of Donna Noble, from the 2006 Christmas special, as the Doctor’s latest companion. Midway through the series, Freema Agyeman will also return to her role of Martha Jones, following a multi-episode guest appearance in the Doctor Who spin-off series, Torchwood. John Barrowman will continue his role as Captain Jack Harkness, and Billie Piper will return as Rose Tyler for three episodes. Elisabeth Sladen is also set to return as Sarah Jane Smith in a cameo role.

After a 2008 Christmas special and three further specials starring David Tennant, scheduled to air in 2009, Doctor Who is planned to return in 2010 for a fifth full length series.

Moonlight Fated To Pretend S01E13 (CBS)

It’s been a while since there has been a vampire show on TV. Angel was just a continuation of Buffy. Blade was an action show. Moonlight is somewhere in between. It’s gritty and romantic, which isn’t appalling. Unlike Angel and Forever Knight, Mick St-John isn’t that old of a vampire, so the flashbacks all take place in the 1950s to 1970s.

Alex O’Loughlin plays Mick St-John, a vampire private detective. He is a vampire who fully remembers what it meant to be human and longs to be human. Before the break, the big intrigue was that his vampiric ex-wife came back human. Since Mick longs to be human, he needs to find out if there is a cure for vampirism. Coraline disappeared before Mick could investigate it fully. He managed to get some of her blood though.
